What a pleasure to meet up with friends on the other side of the world! It is with great joy that we meet again for an excellent lunch at Joël Robuchon’s.
As a reminder, here is the route followed:
I don’t have to remind you: this is the usual concept of Joël Robuchon’s “ateliers”: a simple decoration and small portions to taste several.
The frame is usual for Joël Robuchon; black and red with mirrors. Not really up to date.
The menu is quite simple but we will opt today for very reasonable lunch menus around 30€ per person.
The meal and the dishes
As a starter, I will choose the artichoke risotto which will be succulent.
As a main course, poached cod will lack texture
For dessert, the raspberry soufflé is excellent.
The service leaves much to be desired. We had to ask several times for refills of bread or water. Not at the level of a starred restaurant.
We will return for the value for money, but the service must really improve.
